“Great thanksgiving getaway!!!”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in November 2015

My husband and I stayed at this lovely place during thanksgiving. We loved it! It was very quite and newly renovated. The owner was great and made sure we had everything we needed. We were within walking distance to the beach, which we took advantage of every night. There were also some nice restaurants within walking distance as well. The fact that there was a full kitchen also worked out well for us and there was a grocery store no more than 2 miles away.
We had a fabulous time. It was nice and quiet and had everything we needed for a few relaxing days away. We will definitely be going back!!!

“Absolutely one of the best vacation rentals we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 14 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We are in our 60's and have been coming to the Sarasota area for many years now. As we were looking at all the available rental properties we came across THE SUNRISE HOLIDAY RETREAT. The first thing that caught our attention was the 31 trip advisor reviews. All of them gave a 5 star rating. I do not remember any vacation place with a perfect score. There is always someone who has a complaint about something! We were surprised to find out that there was some availability left so we booked in for ten days.
Let me start by saying that we will be the 32nd five star review. Here is a list of what you can expect to find:
1) A very large and super comfortable bed facing a plasma TV with more stations than you would ever need. For reading in bed there are retractable wall lights which makes it easy on the eyes..
2) A state of the arts shower with four different settings. It almost looks like a car wash. My favorite setting was "Rain Shower". It was so nice that I stayed in the shower an extra minute every morning. The shower also has a digital temperature indicator. That is the first time I have ever seen that. My wife did 104 degrees and I was 101 degrees.
3) The microwave was the latest in modern technology. There were numerous settings and options for every need. I still did not have it entirely figured out when we left. I spent almost all of my time pushing the "express microwave" button.
4) There is a modern Jacuzzi on the deck just outside the back door which is available 24/7. It is carefully monitored for cleanliness by the owners. Also, there is an outdoor shower that is available for use before entering and leaving the hot tub.
5) The kitchen is well supplied and the counter tops are beautiful, dishwasher is new, laundromat is new (no quarters needed),
6) The location is ideal. You drive over the bridge and you are in Siesta Keys. Turn right and you will find the beach which was named the #1 beach in the USA last year. If you like privacy then this is the place for you. The only person I saw and said hello to was the garbage man when he came by.
7) The owners, Bruce & Cynthia, are very welcoming. They will do everything possible to make your stay a pleasant one.
**** Bruce & Cynthia, if you get to read this, Thank you for making our vacation special!!

“A sweet hideaway in the middle of everything!”
Reviewed 12 February 2016 for a stay in January 2015

Sunrise Retreat is a rare gem of a vacation getaway. It's a cozy, fully equipped, charming studio with amenities galore: a complete kitchen with brand new appliances, comfortable bed, fenced in yards for our dog to explore, a patio and grill for outside dining, and an inviting hot tub on the deck, all surrounded by lush tropical flora, and a water fountain in the front yard, adding another beautiful and soothing touch to being outside. Tucked away on a quiet neighborhood street just minutes from the beach, restaurants, health food store, shopping, nature walks-all within walking distance`-this wonderful studio rental has it all: comfort, ease, privacy, rest, convenience, nature and entertainment. Being able to bring our dog along for our three week stay was a big plus! Cynthia and Bruce could not have been more kind, helpful and accommodating to our needs. We would not hesitate to return for a longer visit. Here are some of the local amenities we enjoyed and can recommend, which were within a 5 to 30 minute drive: Crescent Beach; Turtle Beach and Wildlife Preserve; Brohard Dog Park in Venice; Armond Circle, the boutique center of Siesta Key; the Village of Siesta Key for more shopping and good food, Big Olaf, the Amish ice cream parlor, and the Saturday Farmer's Market; Ringling Art and Circus museums and beautiful walking paths amidst manicured grounds; Walt's Fish Market and restaurant; Flavors of India restaurant; Toasted Mango Cafe for breakfast and lunch; the Westfield Mall less than 5 miles away for big store shopping and AMC 12 Theater; Burns Court Cinema for independent and International films; the Bavarian bakery on Stickney Point Road and the French bakery C'est L Vie in Sarasota city, which is close to Whole Foods. And, just in case you need a good chiropractic adjustment during your stay, we recommend Liott Chiropractic, just a mile away. Sunrise Retreat felt like home. We'll be back!

“Perfect setting and location! What a find!”
Reviewed 8 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We recently stayed and celebrated in this wonderful cottage for our 26th wedding anniversary. From the beginning Cynthia was very prompt in her replies and informative.
Cynthia was very accomadating with our arrival and departure times. The cottage was recently renovative and has a beautiful kitchen with eveything one could imagine or ever need. The fully enclosed patio has a jacuzzi and private seating area. Great effort has been made to every detail to ensure guests have a wonderful stay as well as providing to all of their needs. We will definitely be back !!

“Wonderful, literally!”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I don't know where to start. Cynthia is the ultimate host, starting with her communications once we inquired about the property.
First, the cottage has been totally redone over the summer. The decor is fresh and homey. Everything you need is there including a fully equipped kitchen with an Advantium (very cool) oven. We really couldn't not find anything we needed. King sized bed, flat screen TV with all kinds of channels. Bathroom with a shower wall. Everything worked great.
Outside is as fantastic as the inside. A totally private back deck, surrounded by palm trees, with a patio set and a nice hot tub. Plus, a side yard with a BBQ grill, table, and a tropical setting. We didn't travel with our dog, but if you did it's a nice enclosed area for the pup.
Cynthia and Bruce are great, caring people; always concerned that everything is fine. We can't say enough about this property and it is walking distance to siesta key and a short drive to anything you may want.
Definitely want to go back!
